International Symposium of Assessing Learning Outcomes for Education Abroad


Recent years, the number of study-oversea programs, especially short-stay programs, are increasing at universities and we are expected to verify, assess and analyze the outcomes.
This symposium is announcing some practices which monitor the learning outcomes objectively by testing tools available in Japan now.
